GT Tour: Team Speed Car returning to French GT Tour with an Audi R8 LMS ultra

By Johan Laubscher

Team Speed Car will again be relying on Audi GT3 machinery for the third straight year during 2015. Pascal Destembert's team will be returning to the French GT Tour with a single-car entry and a new red livery.

Team Speed Car has already been hard at work with their Audi R8 LMS ultra. They were out testing at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain during December, with further testing scheduled to take place at Ledenon from 13 to 14 January.

2014 was a difficult year for the team with bad luck and the severe crash suffered by Rémy Deguffroy at Spa-Francorchamps. They are ready to put the difficulties of 2014 behind them and aim for victory during 2015.

The French Audi Sport customer racing team will announce its driver line-up at a later date.
